Cat Paradise

What could suit a Cat more than a comfortable wool blanket next to a wood stove on a damp and cool autumn day?

As per usual She commandeered the most comfortable chair in the house, in the warmest place, with the hummingbird feeder (cat TV) in view. Now if only She could train her humans to be quiet during nap time.

Second best, usually, is a warm lap. For a while, but laps don’t stay still enough for a proper nap.

But really, nothing beats the luxury of a wood stove and comfy chair. Though in Her mind it is not a luxury, but a necessity.

[Edit: I had to come in to fix things, for She complained that I had not captilised the pronouns properly. Sigh.]

    • Hi stuaato – welcome to my blog. I have been enjoying your pictures. I often wish I was a cat, this one anyway, She is pampered in a way humans can only dream about.

    • Hi Meg – thanks so much for dropping by my blog. I really like your ‘guess what this is’ series – you choose very difficult to recognise details of familiar objects. And thanks for your kind words on this post.

    • freeflight – welcome to my blog, I am glad you felt the warm feelings that are wrapped up in these pictures. Tommy(?) looks like an adorable playful cat.

      I have been looking at your paragliding pictures – they are awesome – so nice to see the view from the air. Fairly near where I live is the local paragliding spot – from the top of the bluff over the ocean in Beacon Hill Park. I see paragliders many times in the course of a year, but always from the ground. It would be interesting to see photos of the Beacon Hill area from the paraglider’s perspective. I will have to do some searching, there must be some.

    • If your cats are not reading over your shoulder, you must have chosen the location of your computer very carefully – no heaters behind you, no comfy surfaces, no windows looking on bird life, etc. Pretty hard to arrange, but I don’t blame you; cats can be pretty tiresome when they perceive an inequity in their particular setting. And, thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting, much appreciated.

    • Hi Debra – thank you for dropping in and commenting. Cats rule, literally. They turn a chair into a throne, but only if its comfortable. It is very hard to lose cats – I hope that Tallulah had a good long life.

    • She says thank you, but is a bit disconcerted by a couple of the vidoes on your blog that show the indignities that occur in cat lives – She wishes to not be reminded.

    • Anne – thanks so much for visiting, and for liking my Cat. Right now she She is under the covers of the bed as her Her humans are too noisy and its too chilly elsewhere. But, when she She emerges I am sure She too will offer thanks, in some modest way.
      I am enjoying your Scottish travel photos – that one of the bridge angling across the creek is wonderful and leaves me wondering why bridge engineers don’t more often consider the aesthetics of right angle crossings. I know, a 45 degree angle costs more, but it sure looks nice, and a lot of expense seems to go into making some bridges look nice, so why not just do it. The Cat however is with the engineers on this one – the shorter the crossing the better when it comes to water.

    • hi using – nice to have you visiting my blog. I have been admiring your use of laser light to illuminate your photos. I would never have thought of that. Somehow, I think the cat would not find that restful though. She used to love chasing a laser light spot around the room though.

    • Hey Jim – thanks for dropping by and commenting. She has a very quiet purr, but when really happy mixes it with a sort of meow to make a chirping sound. Not normal, but very sweet.

    • She is sitting in that same spot right now – paws curled under Her chest, reading over my shoulder from across the room. She says “abu zar? Yes, that person is OK”. However, She does not like to look at your marvellous pictures of water and rocks and streams, far to wet.

      • Well, She is a cat, so you might have better things to waste your time on πŸ™‚ She is very friendly just before breakfast, and just before dinner. The rest of the time, its “I would rather be sleeping than being paid attention to”, etc. But, it is good to practice making friends with cats, they appreciate the respect it implies.

    • I’m glad you found your way here too. Especially since you like my cat πŸ™‚
      That tummy allows scratching for about 5 seconds, and then the hind feet kick in, so to speak. Though gentle, its a warning of worse to come. We understand each other, tummy rubbing is allowed because it seems to be necessary, even if She can’t understand why.

    • Her Self thanks your for the compliment. However, the suggestion of cats that had humans in a past life resulted in the baring of claws. She was not impressed with that part at all. Typical with cats, as far They are concerned, the servants can never really get it right.
